Fresh from the LA Lakers’ failed finals tilt, Lebron James looked refreshed and overjoyed to see his former teammates, all of whom have been competing in the US team for over a decade.

As the stars aligned, one of the big questions at training was ‘Can you spin a basketball on your finger?’

One of the oldest tricks in the basketball book was put to the test with Steph Curry taking to social media to admit his struggles.

“I can do a lot of things with a basketball,” Curry said. “That is the one thing that I cannot do.”

The US Men’s Basketball team kicked off their campaign against Serbia in France on July 28.
